Great experience with the program and staff. Encouraging physicians! And most importantly, the doctors have years of experience doing this and they are all physicians. That makes a huge difference in success rate. This isn't some gimmick place that doesn't work or you just gain your weight back. These docs know what they are doing. Just go, you won't be sorry!!

I have been trying to lose weight for a while. I went to my initial appointment where I was seen by a different person, who to me. he gave me a 1 month supply, after 2 weeks the meds were not doing anything for me so I called and he said that why I want to see you in 2 weeks. I said can you see me today, this weekend. He said no the office isn't open this Saturday in that location. So I cancelled and told they I would not be back. Oh, the secretary is very rude. I am looking for another doctor.
